Well, that's most likely your problem.

reiserfs has another scheme of directory operations and no problems with
large directories.
ext2 unpatched has them.

If you're in an experimental mood try using the patches mentioned in
That should make your problem vanish.

Or, you could use reiserfs too, of course.
